Dolphins Cornerback Tony Lippett Out For Season With Torn Achilles

Miami Dolphins cornerback Tony Lippett is out for the entire season due to a torn Achilles tendon.

Lippett, who started 13 games last season, was expected to be the Dolphins' No. 3 cornerback behind Byron Maxwell and Xavien Howard. 

Miami earlier lost three key players: quarterback Ryan Tannehill, guard Ted Larsen and rookie middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan due to serious injuries.
